The practice questions with explanations helped me understand how to answer test questions and think like a nurse.

– Allyse Edwards, Bryan College of Health Sciences, NE




I honestly feel that every incoming student nurse should have a copy of the Fundamentals Success book because it familiarizes students with what their fundamental tests will be like. Who wouldn't benefit from knowing what their test is going to look like? Being prepared with Fundamentals Success meant I hit the ground running. I aced my first test when most of my classmates were facing their first ever-academic failures. Nursing school is nothing like anything I have ever done before, memorizing text books will do little to prepare you to be a critical thinker. To succeed you must be able to apply the knowledge in multi-step process...the nursing process! The FA Davis books take you there and they do it quickly, because we nursing students needed to know it yesterday!

Course review now. NCLEX-prep later. 1,000+ critical-thinking questions (both multiple choice and alternate format) organize the seemingly huge volume of pharmacology information you must master into manageable sections divided by body systems and specific diseases. You’ll not only learn to associate the medication with the disease process, making learning easier, but also be able to evaluate your knowledge before you take your exams.




All of the questions encompass the basic concepts of medication administration, including why the client is taking the medication…when the nurse would question administering the medication…how the nurse knows the medication is effective…and what interventions the nurse needs to teach the client concerning the medication.

“The success books have helped me so much in many of my nursing courses, specifically in my med-surg nursing class. I found that the success books helped me to know where to focus my studying and also gave me a lot of great review questions that really prepared me for my exams! By using the med-surg success book, my grades shot up from an 89 to a 96. Also through the med-surg success book, my grades were consistently in the mid to high 90's range. I encourage all my friends to use the success books and they can agree that it has really helped them as well.” -  Esther Hung, Student Nurse at Molloy College, Rockville Centre, NY

What if society wasn't fundamentally rational, but was motivated by insanity? This thought sets Jon Ronson on an utterly compelling adventure into the world of madness. Along the way, Jon meets psychopaths, those whose lives have been touched by madness and those whose job it is to diagnose it, including the influential psychologist who developed the Psychopath Test, from whom Jon learns the art of psychopath-spotting. A skill which seemingly reveals that madness could indeed be at the heart of everything . . . Combining Jon Ronson's trademark humour, charm and investigative incision, The Psychopath Test is both entertaining and honest, unearthing dangerous truths and asking serious questions about how we define normality in a world where we are increasingly judged by our maddest edges.
